this would look right before the election, they denied it over at homeland security and categorically denied it and now ap says it has the internal documents to prove it. and joining me is the chief counsel for the center of law and justice. this story, it's hard to get your arms around how many things went wrong here, we have an illegal immigrant who is a child molester, who is volunteering in the office of a u.s. senator and first, the senator's office says, well, we didn't know any of that because he was unpaid, so we never checked the social security number. there was no way for us to know is what they say. let's table that for now and talk about the fact that it appears no one other than the associated press, now judicial watch and i guess senator chuck grassley has taken interest thanks to the ap. >> right. >> megyn: where is the inspector general, the white house, the administration to try to see whether this actually happened? >> yeah, nowhere to be found is the answer to that and i think that what senator grassley did in his letter and request, as well as judicial watch in their doc
to business leaders as you know, since the election in particular and he has met with dozens of ceo's and business leaders and talking about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling debate coming in the weeks ahead and you'll remember at a previous jobs council meeting, the president made a comment that back fired on him and to what jay carney said about the president and the economy. >> shovel ready was not as shovel ready as we expected. >> the reelection was in some ways for all of us here, you know, a humbling experience because it was an assertion by the electorate to said despite how hard the last four years have been on this country because of the great economic crisis that we were in when the president took office, that the steps that we've taken have been the right steps, and more work needs to be done. >> more work needs to be done. when you talk to the president's top advisors, they say he wants to act quickly after the inaugural address and state of the union coming up in february to work on key domestic issues like immigration he reform, like gun control that he's been tal
were in the middle of at presidential election. >> and megyn, i think as secretary clinton said this has been settled. and senator johnson as john kerry pointed out today didn't know what happened he skipped the intelligence briefing that would have actually given him the answers that he was looking for yesterday. >> megyn: all right, give you the quick final word, mark. >> sure, i used to write these statements at the white house and what you say is, look, we don't know exactly what happened, there are some reports that say it was a protest and other reports is a that say otherwise, here is what we know right now and as we get more details we'll tell you if they had stuck to that basic principle they wouldn't have trouble. they wanted to believe the spin that al-qaeda was decimated, they're not decimated. >> megyn: sadly. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> megyn: up next, serious questions about privacy and the secretary amendment as one lawmaker proposes a plan that would require parents to tell schools if they own a gun and would punish them if they don't. it's coming up in
